    My favorite is “carmageddon”, a blending of “car” and “Armageddon” used to describe the possible 30 mile traffic jam last summer when the 405 Freeway in West Los Angeles was shut down for the weekend.

  2. Thanks, Diane. That’s a good one. “Carmageddon” did its job. It sounded scary enough to empty the freeway.
